events affect inflation and unemployment in the american economy? u.s. society was besieged by the twin assaults of inflation and unemployment in the 1970s. why couldn't the government achieve significant success against the ravages of stagflation? in the late 1990s, the economy was booming. unemployment was at a 30-year low, and inflation was also at a 30-year low. did that mean inflation was dead? during the 1970s, the american dream threatened to become the american nightmare. for the first time, we were faced with skyrocketing prices and exploding unemployment. stagflation -- why couldn't we beat it? with economic analyst richard gill, we'll explore that question on this edition of "economics usa." i'm david schoumacher. schoumacher: since the passage of the employment act in 1946, it has been accepted policy for the government to fight unemployment by stimulating total demand. often, inflation resulted. when that happened, the government shifted gears and clamped down on demand in order to decrease inflation. for five administrations, the government more or less successfully practi

, acquired more power to affect the economy than even it imagined at the outset. the federal reserve: does money matter? with the help of economic analyst richard gill, we'll explore that question on economics usa. i'm david schoumacher. coins, bills, checks-- our basic money supply. the amount of money and where it goes wiin the banking system has been the main concern of our nation's central bank. at the fed's headquarters here in washington, dc, closed deliberations are held by experts who continuously monitor our financial health and prescribe remedies. how did these experts prescribe a remedy that plunged us even deeper into the great depression? early in the 20th century, american banks operated with little regulation and great vulnerability. in 1907, that vulnerability became apparent when depositors lost confidence and demanded their money. the banks couldn't get short-term loans, and many colpsed. it took a powerful banker, j.p. morgan, to end the 1907 panic. but should an entire country be dependent on an individual's whim? a central bank, a lender of last resort, seemed a better
obligated 2.0 around this time 2009 the shot that just hit the economy that was possibly worse than the shots that precipitated the onset of the great depression. my predecessor christie romer pointed out the stock market fall in 2009 was similar to the fall of 2008. but the home prices were considerably larger as a result five times larger at the onset of the great recession as the onset of the great depression. we have also documented ways that the shock was worse. while we are still digging out there is no question a great deal of progress. adding 2.4 million jobs marks the third consecutive year of job growth from february 2010 private employment has risen in 47 consecutive months for a total of 8.5 million jobs. we think of the ups and downs with the employment data. you can see steady consistent job growth at a pace of about 190,000 private sector jobs didn't november december the resawed job growth faster than that pays. december and january it did not come up to that average for a variety of things whether the whether seasonal factors or normal boy is sid measurements that b
is the new government's economy and trade minister. thank you for being with us. you've heard hydration on ukraine. it seems fairly serious, how would you characterize it. >> it relates to public finance. the public finance is in pretty bad condition. however, the health of the economy is not that bad. comparing, for example, with the situation, with the crisis of 2008 when the next year in 2009 ukrainian economy collapsed by 15%. last year 2013 was not so good, but it was not so bad. so what is recorded is zero percent of growth, it doesn't make us happy at all, but it's nothing like the crisis in 2008. at the same time let me repeat the public finance is in disarray and something we need to take care of. >> you're the economy minister. you're a trained economist as such this could not be good economics to be dealing with a fiscal crisis, a public finance crisis and possibly a war. what is happening in your government right now to avoid this escalating any further militarily. >> ukraine will be using only peaceful means. we are being provoked, but we are not responding to the provocati

prices in europe would raise the unlikely but scary possibility of europe's fragile economy being pushed back into recession that could deal a direct blow to u.s. companies, investors and consumers. calls for sanctions are increasing. sanctions worked against libya and iran, but russia is closely tied to europe through those pipelines that carry crucial natural gas, so while the idea may appeal to americans, they are a harder sell in europe. the european union gets a quarter of its natural gas supplies from russia and half of that is routed through ukraine's pipeline network. any disruption would hit germany which defends on the gas to run its factories, especially hard. and if prices of germany out put increases that would rock europe. russia could shut off supplies pre-emptively in response to the threat of sanctions or step things up militarily sending troops into eastern ukraine which is part of the natural gas transit route to europe. >> crimea isn't really on the transit group, however, the east ukraine, a lot of russian speakers there, if the kremlin seeks to broaden those conflic

-- actions are affecting the economy and where the economy is heading. i now turn to ranking member crapo for his opening statement. >> thank you, mr. chairman. and welcome, also, chair yellen on your first appearance before this committee as the chair of the federal reserve board of governors. today's hearing is an important opportunity to examine the current state of monetary policy. since your confirmation hearing in november, the fed has begun the process of tapering its quantitative easing purposes. the pace of quantitative easing purchases has come down by $20 billion. this is a welcome development for those of us who disagree with the federal reserve's quantitative easing policy and prefer to see qe purchases end entirely later this year. by the time the fed stops expanding its balance sheet it will hold over $4 trillion in treasury and mortgage backed securities. former chairman bernanke suggested the fed might maintain the size of the balance sheet for some time rather than reducing it. this would mean the balance sheets to purchase those assets would remain in the financial syst
is the impact washington's constant tinkering with the tax code has had on our economy and our families. we don't have to look long before we see but the current tax code has done to jobs. wages have been steadily falling over the last five years. this economy cannot even produce enough jobs for all the kids coming out of college today. there are a record number of young americans who are moving back in with their parents instead of launching their own careers and starting their own families. the last time we reformed the tax code was 1986. that was 28 years ago. beacon is nowthe falling behind. it risks falling even further behind unless we take action. the time to act is now. america cannot afford to wait. i really saw up close just what a mess washington was making of the tax code back in december of 2010 when a few of us in the administration, the senate and house would huddle on a daily basis to figure out how to handle expiring tax provisions. there was no rhyme or reason and no justification for such short-term policymaking. not when the real world makes business decisions on a long-term
